Visiting Students

Although LIU Global is a four-year global studies program, students from other U.S. universities, including LIU Brooklyn and LIU Post, are heartily encouraged to study abroad as a visiting student at any of LIU Global's centers for one semester or academic year. Visiting students do not matriculate for a LIU Global degree and return to their home institutions to complete graduation requirements.

We offer visiting students from other colleges and universities a full range of advising and support services, focusing on such issues as program selection, academic planning, registration, credit transfer, cultural adjustment, on-site support, and re-entry.

LIU Global visiting students are required to take the language and area studies courses offered at each center or program. The balance of their coursework is comprised of elective courses, internships, and independent study. Visiting students receive a letter grade in each completed course.

Visiting students are advised to talk with their study abroad, academic advisor, registrar, and/or financial aid office at their home universities in order to determine the home institution’s requirements with regards to application deadlines, credit transfer, and financial aid procedures. Visiting students will construct a learning plan in consultation with a faculty advisor upon arrival at a LIU Global center. However, if necessary to satisfy requirements at the home institution, visiting students are encouraged to communicate with a faculty advisor in advance of arrival at a LIU Global center.
